3 Using Worksheets Excel worksheets are multifunction tools. Create lists such as inventories or contact information, use them for accounting and analysis, or create a form to collect data. The possibilities are many and varied. Working with Cells A cell is where a worksheet row and column intersect. When you click in a cell it becomes active, ready to accept content such as text, numbers, formulas, etc. Viewing a cell and its contents: The Name Box displays the name or reference of the selected cell or cells. The Formula Box displays the contents of the active cell; a formula, text, numbers, etc. The Active Cell is identified by a darker border. Click in a cell to make it active. Once it is active, you can change its formatting, add data, etc. Selecting a Range of Cells: Clicking and dragging with your mouse pointer selects more than one cell called a range of cells. Formatting options can then be done on multiple cells at once. To select a range of cells: 1. Select the cell that will be the upper left corner of the range. 2. Holding the left mouse button down, drag mouse pointer to the bottom right corner of the range. 3. Release the mouse button and the range of cells will be indicated by a dark border and highlighting. 3 ways to access the Format Cells dialog box: 1. Right click in a selected cell and select Format Cells from the right-click menu. 2. From the Home tab, Cells group, click Format and then Format Cells from the menu. 3. On the Home tab, click the Dialog Box Launcher button on the Font, Alignment, or Number groups. The Format Cells Dialog Box: The Format Cells dialog box contains most of the cell formatting options. With it you can: Set the cell s specific content type. Adjust alignment of cell contents. Change font and font styles. Add borders. Choose a fill color. Protect the cell from changes. Using AutoFill Features: You can quickly create lists of numbers, dates, etc. using AutoFill. This feature creates a repeating or consecutive list by simply clicking and dragging, down or sideways, with your mouse. Drag the drag handle down or sideways. Hold the Ctrl key and drag to continue a numeric list. Using the New Flash Fill Feature Options box that appears to select a copy option. Live Preview will show you what the next number, date, etc. will be. New with Excel 2013 is Flash Fill. Use Flash Fill to fill out data based on an example. Flash Fill typically starts working when it recognizes a pattern in your data and completes it for you. For example, to separate a full name into First, Middle Initial, and Last Name:

4 Working with Rows and Columns To adjust a row s height or a column s width: In the row or column header, hover the mouse pointer over the boundary between rows or columns. The mouse pointer changes to pointer. Now click and drag the boundary to resize. As you resize, a box will appear to indicate size. To select an entire row or column: Move the pointer into the row or column s header. The pointer changes to a bold arrow. Click to select the entire row or column. Tip: You can click and drag to select multiple rows and columns. To select the entire work sheet: Click on the button in the upper left corner of the header rows. Or, press the Ctrl key and A key (Ctrl + A). Formulas Formulas and functions are the real power of Excel. Use it to calculate values, reduce workload, and ensure accuracy. Writing formulas the basics: 1. Select the cell that will contain the formula. 2. Enter an equal sign (=). This begins any formula. 3. Enter the formula using the following guidelines: The main types of operators are; Add (+), Subtract (-), Multiply (*), and Divide (/). Reference cells by their cell number (i.e. A1, C5, etc.). Constants (numbers) can also be used in formulas (i.e. 3, 4.5, 14, etc.). Follow math formula rules (See Order of Mathematical Operations below). For example, in the formula =4*(2+7), 2 is added to 7, then the sum multiplied by Press Enter to save the formula in the cell. Order of Mathematical Operations If more than one operator is used in a formula, Excel will follow a specific order to perform these operations. The order of operations can be changed by adding parenthesis to the formula. An easy way to remember the order of operations is to use the acronym PEDMAS. The Order of Operations is: 1. Parenthesis 2. Exponents 3. Division 4. Multiplication 5. Addition 6. Subtraction Inserting a Function Select the cell that will contain the function. Insert Function button on the formula bar or click the Insert Function button on the Formulas tab, Function Library group. This opens the Insert Function dialog box. Do one of the following: A. Search for a Function by entering a name or description and click Go or, B. Select a Category in the Select a category field C. Then select a function from the Select a function list. In the Function Aguments dialog box, enter the arguments for the formula. Arguments are the values that a function uses to perform a calculation or operation. Optional: To select a cell or a range of cells as an argument, click the Collapse Dialog button, select the cells on the worksheet, and press the Expand Dialog button to return to the dialog box. Click OK when you are finished. Using the Function Library To display the Function Library group, Click on the Formulas tab. Click a category button in the Function Library group and select the functions from the resulting menus. Using the Sum Button With the Sum button you can quickly add a list of numbers. You can also evaluate Average, the Number of numbers, the Maximum or Minimum number, or access the Insert Function dialog box. 1. Click a cell below or to the right of the row of numbers you want to evaluate. 2. On the Home tab, Editing group or on the Formulas tab, Function Library group, click the arrow on the Sum button. 3. Select a function or More Functions

5 Understanding Functions in Formulas Functions perform calculations using values you specify. A formula begins the equal sign then the function name, an open parenthesis, arguments separated by commas, and a closing parenthesis. Equal sign begins a formula. Function Name Commas separate each argument =SUM(A1,B3:B5,2) Arguments Parenthesis enclose arguments and indicate order of calculation All Function options can be accessed from the Formulas tab, Function Library group. Practicing Formulas Using the table on the right, check out the formulas below to see how formulas work. Formula Description Result =SUM(A1, B2:B4, Total values in A1, B2 through B4, 2) add 2 11 =AVERAGE(A1:D1) Add values in A1, B1, C1, and D1 and divide by =B1+10*D4 Multiply 10 by the value in D4, add value in B1. 32 =A4/C4+33 Divide value in A4 by value in C4, add =(C2+(B3-2))*D4 Subtract 2 from value in B3, add value in C2, and multiply value in D4. 18
